Shoulder 3D range of motion and humerus rotation in two volleyball spike techniques: injury prevention and performance.

Abstract

Repetitive stresses and movements on the shoulder in the volleyball spike expose this joint to overuse injuries, bringing athletes to a career threatening injury. Assuming that specific spike techniques play an important role in injury risk, we compared the kinematic of the traditional (TT) and the alternative (AT) techniques in 21 elite athletes… (More)
